On her way home from work on the NYC subway, Gillian Roberts spotted something that would soon provide happiness not only to her but to individuals all over the world.
Roberts saw a guy holding a little cat in his lap, and the sight made her heart melt.
The man was bottle-feeding the kitten, which was covered in a towel.
It wasn’t just the sight of the adorable kitten that made the scene so special for Roberts; it was the intense, almost palpable feeling of tenderness and care that the man seemed to exude while tending to the little cat.
Rogers felt compelled to find out more about the man and the kitten and approached the pair.
She chatted to the man for some time and found out that he had found the kitten in an alley.
He’d rescued her and was now doing his best to nurture her and help her grow strong and healthy.
Rogers couldn’t help but observe the obvious affection in the little kitten’s eyes for her saviour.
According to Rogers, the cat was gazing up at him while he fed her.
When she got off at her stop, her entire day looked lighter and full of optimism. She praised the guy for everything he was doing for the kitty.
And soon, that feeling had spread; after Rogers posted about her encounter online, pictures of the kind man and the kitten quickly went viral.
The pure love and compassion on display seemed to speak to people on a deeper level and lifted their spirits in the same way Rogers’s mood had been elevated.
